Yellow warning of snow and ice ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Issued at:
1129 on Thu 11 Dec 2014 ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Valid from:
0010 on Fri 12 Dec 2014 ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Valid to:
1000 on Fri 12 Dec 2014 ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A weather system will cross to the south of the warning area early on Friday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

This will bring rain to many areas but snow is likely over some of the higher ground, such as the Pennines. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Even at lower levels there is a risk that rain may turn to snow before it clears eastwards – but this not happening everywhere. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The snow could be heavy on hills, giving 5 cm or so, but on lower ground temporary accumulations of up to 2 cm seem more likely. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Following clearance at the end of the night, there is an increasing risk of ice forming on untreated surfaces. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The public should be aware of the potential for hazardous driving conditions. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

This is a further update to the warning first issued on Tuesday, edging the risk area south again and slightly reducing the expected amounts and impact. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Local Authorities affected and associated warning levels: Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Wrexham ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
